question about Marzocchi 2004 fork

I just bought a 2004 coiler. it has the Marzocchi Drop-Off Comp 130mm been riding
for a few days now. havent really been on any trails yet. I twisted off the top cap above the fork it looks like two air valves. can i take a normal hand pump and put some air into them to make them a little tighter? im really new to MTB andstill learnin alot.

Not usually a normal air pump. Due to the pressures required most air pumps will not get near the required amount.

30$ to buy the marz pump. Well worth the investment
